When Worlds Collide - Chapter Five

Ky heard a bear roar followed closely by a panicked human scream of terror.

He sprung to his feet and dashed toward the sound, bounding over fallen trees and the fern beds below them. He leaped across a stream and came around a clump of blackberry bushes to find a man just barely hanging from a tree limb above the head of a highly disturbed bear.

The mother bear had obviously been grazing with her two cubs when the man must have stumbled on her. He was lucky he made it up the tree and even luckier that Ky showed up. The bear was pushing the tree, causing it to violently sway. It was on the verge of toppling.

When Worlds Collide - Chapter Four

Nat came to the end of his ball of twine. He was at the edge of a forest, which obscured his view of what he thought might be the Pipe Stones. He sat down on a log and wished he had brought yet another ball of twine. This was the end of the second. He pulled the bottle of water out of his lab coat pocket and took a long draw. He would have to go back and be better prepared the next time. He had not seen any sighs of humans in the area. He did hear wolf calls earlier, but it seemed far away. He saw birds and at one point, thought he saw deer off in the distance, but his long-range vision was not very good. Next time he would also bring a pair of binoculars, or perhaps add that feature to the googles, after all, it was the second time he wished he had them.

He marveled at the vegetation around him. The forest was dense and looked very old even to his untrained eye. No one had ever logged this – perhaps never walked through it. He was starting to convince himself more and more that he had discovered some sort of parallel world. He would have taken samples of flora, but it all appeared so normal. He spotted oaks, pines, some birch and the undergrowth consisted of recognizable ferns, mosses and toadstools.

When Worlds Collide - Chapter Three

“No… No… Everything is fine, I just don’t need you today,” Nat said from the other end of the line. “There is just some fine tuning I need to do and you may as well take the day off. It’s such a nice day… Enjoy the sun.”

Chelsie was surprised he even noticed the sun was out. He never seemed to leave the lab these days.

“If you’re sure,” she said hesitantly on the other end of the phone. It wasn’t like the professor to let her slack for a day. His normal operational behavior was to ask her to stay overtime.

“I’m sure.”

When Worlds Collide - Chapter Two

Ky finished planting the moonbeam vine and gently wove the stems through the trellis attached to the manor wall behind it. The vine would light up this whole area of the garden at night without bothering the resident vampire and the rest of his coven.

Gunter walked around the corner of the building. “Finished?”

“Just about,” Ky answered, as he put a twist tie on the last branch to hold it in place until it grew a bit more.

Gunter took off his hat and wiped his brow with his sleeve. The head gardener was a big man and it was a warm day. “Good, I want you and Gaulop to trim the hedge along the walk in the side garden. If you work quickly you can have it finished by quitting time.”
